"The Bohr model is like the solar system model, as electrons are orbiting around the nucleus, just like planets revolve around the sun."
"Actually the well-recognized symbol of the atom is the Rutherford model. But the Bohr model is like Newtonian physics - good enough to get us to the moon."
METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
